    1872 Gold Dollar in Silver-Plated Copper
    Judd-1227, PR62

    1872 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1227, Pollock-1370, R.8, PR62 Silver Plated PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Traditionally described as dies trial strikings, these pieces were undoubtedly struck instead for collectors who assembled off-metal "trials" for sets each year. Struck in copper and silver plated with a reeded edge. The better-known versions of this off-metal strike are in copper and aluminum. However, a silver piece has been listed in the past and is undoubtedly this silver-plated version. The fields are bright and reflective and we do not see any of the underlying copper showing through the silver plating. A few small marks are noted on each side.
    Ex: Waldo Newcomer; Farouk; Abner Kreisberg (2/1960); Federal Brand (10/1961); Harry X Boosel (RARCOA, 2/1973).
